Explore the occult from ancient times to the modern day with one of its most respected scholars and practitioners.
Take an enlightening journey through occult history, exploring 100 dramatic incidents, arcane knowledge, and key historical figures from around the world. John Michael Greer delves into two millennia of tradition, from the earliest alchemists to pagan rituals; from the Philosopher’s Stone to Cabala, the first tarot, and the Knights Templar; and from the first horoscopes to fortune-telling trials and the birth of modern witchcraft, or Wicca. Each entry features a stunning image or intriguing item of ephemera.

He is also a Freemason as well as a Knight Templar in the York Rite, among other high degrees. He has also studied astrological magic, traditional Southern conjure, and Tai Chi. In addition, he has a degree in the Comparative History of Ideas from the University of Washington. He has a total of 45 titles in print or forthcoming that he has written, cowritten, translated, or edited; 27 of these explore occultism or pagan nature spirituality. He lives in northwestern MD.
